Stylocoeniella is an encrusting small polyp stony coral. It forms a smooth skin which protrudes past the corallites where growth is active.

They are each capped with thin tentacles surrounding their perimeter.

I found this one at MACNA 2014 hiding among the corals in Jason Fox's flat. It was, of course, aquacultured by him, and my plan was immediately to continue spreading...
